Taking the big step of being vulnerable enough to share my story publicly was a big step I was willing to take. Although nerve wracking. I’m glad I did it. 

This documentary is very dear to my heart and I decided to pour myself into this, not just by telling my story but also being a major part of the filmmaking process. Filming and producing this documentary was very emotional for me. Everytime I heard the stories of the women, I always felt a wave of emotions. While it was hard listening to their struggles, I’m happy I could find women who are willing to be vulnerable, be their authentic selves and support each other by telling our stories. 

I hope everyone that watches this documentary feels our heart in this. We put in so much. I hope every woman living with PCOS watches this and feels loved, seen and heard.” about the process of filming and producing the documentary.
